EXAFS: Basic Principles and Data Analysis (Inorganic by Boon K. Teo

By Boon K. Teo

The phenomenon of prolonged X-Ray Absorption wonderful constitution (EXAFS) has been identified for it slow and used to be first taken care of theoretically by way of Kronig within the Thirties. contemporary advancements, initiated by way of Sayers, Stern, and Lytle within the early Seventies, have ended in the popularity of the structural content material of this method. while, the provision of synchrotron radiation has tremendously stronger either the purchase and the standard of the EXAFS information over these available from traditional X-ray resources. Such advancements have verified EXAFS as a strong software for constitution reviews. EXAFS has been effectively utilized to a variety of major clinical and technological structures in lots of diversified fields resembling inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, catalysis, fabric sciences, and so on. this can be very important for structures the place single-crystal diffraction options aren't conveniently appropriate (e.g., fuel, liquid, resolution, amorphous and polycrystalline solids, surfaces, polymer, etc.). even though the EXAFS process and functions have matured vastly over the last decade or so, no introductory textbook exists. EXAFS: simple rules and knowledge research represents my modest try to fill this sort of hole. during this booklet, I goal to introduce the subject material to the beginner and to assist alleviate the confusion in EXAFS information research, which, even if turning into progressively more regimen, continues to be a slightly tough activity and will, now and then, discourage the novices.

Chapter 3 EXAFS Parameters Before describing in detail the various aspects of EXAFS theory and data analysis techniques, it is instructive to first discuss, qualitatively and graphically, the various variables (or parameters) and functions and their effects and correIa tions. 10 demonstrate how an EXAFS spectrum in k space is built from various variables and functions. To illustrate their effects on the resulting EXAFS spectrum, two sets of variables or functions are shown in each case. In Fig.

In this process, the core vacancy is filled by an electron dropping from a higher shell while the atom simultaneously ejects another electron, usually from the same higher shell. The Auger effect is therefore a nonradiative or radiationless process. For example, a K -L[LJI Auger transition has an initial state of a K hole and the final state of two vacancies in the L shell.

It is clear then that, in order to fit experimental data based upon some empirical Eo with theoretical phase shifts or phase shifts derived from some model compounds. we must allow Eo to vary. The Eo variation also helps remove the small but significant bonding effects such as electronic configurations and atomic charges. 30 A+8-C (a) 75 A .... 50 / ...... 0 k. , 150 -S- 100 r' t Fig. 4. , a dip in the amplitude function marked by the arrow).
